"All together he (Montanari) offers a colorful, virtouse Corelli on a high technical level and with self-confident but truely differentiated tempos"
FonoForum - February 2006
"Technically and musically perfect...interpretation fascinating and full of verve...superlative technique of Montanari and superb, rich accompaniment of Dantone and of the members of that amazing ensemble Accademia Bizantina"
MUSICA - February 2006
"Soloist Stefano Montanari completely follows the rudiments of chamber music always - also in the virtuose movements - keeping his ensemble in mind. In this way Corellis’s music can develop simultaneosly, just like it is actually planned"
Crescendo - 9 February 2006
"A performance that satisfies both the senses and the spirit, the art of the violin in his richest possibility and an extraordinary feeling for embellishments...Stefano Montanari finds an audacious way to perform Corelli’s op.5 with Ottavio Dantone and the partners of Accademia Bizantina....A wonderful version that fully exploits the universe of his wide artistic choices"
Diapason - February 2006
"...The playing is very good - graceful and lively without bizarre tempos or any other shocking effects"
American Record Guide - November 2006

STEREO - 8 November 2006
